Install, uninstall, enable, and disable user scripts without having to edit your JavaScript files. The user interface was inspired by User:Equazcion/ScriptInstaller, but doesn't share any code with it.

Installation instructionsEdit

In your preferences, go to Preferences → Gadgets. At the bottom of the "Editing" section, click the "Install scripts without having to edit your JavaScript files" checkbox, then click the "Save" button.


  • If you go to a user script page (like User:Enterprisey/reply-link.js), there will now be an "Install" link at the top. Clicking it will install the script and reload the page. Certain pages may have this option disabled.
  • Also on user script pages, there will also be a "Manage user scripts" option at the top, which will show you a list of all of your user scripts, with options to uninstall (i.e. remove entirely) or disable ("comment out" the user script, without permanently removing it; enable will undo this).
  • WP:US/L and other pages that use {{userscript}} will now show script links with a little "Install" link after them.


The script has a number of options that allow you to customize its behavior. To set any of the preferences, follow the following pattern (on a new line in your common.js file):

window.OPTION = VALUE;

For example, if I wanted to, by default, install new scripts to my my monobook.js page instead of my common.js page, I would set the option scriptInstallerInstallTarget to "monobook" by putting the following line somewhere in my common.js:

window.scriptInstallerInstallTarget = "monobook";
Name Values
(Default in bold)
scriptInstallerInstallTarget "common", "monobook", "timeless", "skin name goes here" What skin should scripts be installed for? (Equivalently, what target page should scripts be installed on?)
scriptInstallerAutoReload true, false Should the script reload after installing, uninstalling, and other actions?
